Long Beach    Long Beach offers some of the best attractions, museums, and restaurants, as well as miles of sandy beach front and inland waterways.

Built in the 1930's, this ocean liner had the vital role of carrying troops during World War II. It is now a hotel and an attraction where people can step back in time to experience the life of being on an ocean liner. The Queen Mary is also known as the "haunted ship" due to rumors of paranormal activity. When Halloween comes around, the Queen Mary is transformed into a haunted house with several themed mazes.
